An Australian Football poll


And it’s not about those weird rules! Someone got very upset at those gays flaunting their sexuality at games. Lest you think that maybe she’s homophobic, she added this in an interview later: “I am not homophobic. I know lots of gay people.” Ah, classic! Obviously, this issue needs a poll. I would have thought …

Can you handle two polls in a day?

Here’s another one. A few Australian political leaders are taking a cue from the Americans and following a piecemeal approach to destroy abortion rights. You know how this works: the majority of the population favors those rights (and gay rights, and marijuana decriminialization, and so many other reasonable positions), so the haters get into office …

Netroots Nation is the big progressive political conference sponsored by the gang at the Daily Kos. It’s being held in San Jose this year, at the end of June. They are opening the doors to their exhibition hall and giving 6 organizations free booth space — and among those vying for a slot is American …

A Canadian poll on abortion

I thought Canadians had more sense than this: an MP, Jeff Watson, would like to know if you’d like a complete ban on all abortions. Right now, 37% of his constituency seem to think that’s just fine and dandy. Maybe he needs some global input? Which best describes your position:. I support fully taxpayer-funded abortion, …

A poll you won’t have to think twice about

Simple question, simple answer. Should Ireland legalise same-sex marriage? Yes 56%No 37%Don’t know 6% I always wonder about those “don’t knows”. They’re the ones I want to probe deeper and find out why they’re waffling.

I think I got an A-

I took the Are You a Humanist? test, and only scored 90%. They’re not going to drum me out of the group, are they? Unfortunately, the results don’t tell me on which of the questions I fell short of the humanist ideal. I suspect one might have been where I said my purpose was to …

North Dakota, chickenshit capitol of the world (plus a bonus poll!)

Professors Molly Secor-Turner and Brandy Randall of North Dakota State University were recently awarded a $1.2 million federal grant. Good news, right? The state should be happy, the university should be happy. NDSU is turning it down and returning the money. WHY? Because this is a grant to provide comprehensive sex education to teenagers in …

An airport poll

Who else cringes when they have to fly into Reagan National Airport? I do. And then there’s that boring statue of the evil old fart near the roadway…ick. How about naming an airport after a liberal hero? There’s a poll to do just that. Should SFO be renamed in honor of Harvey Milk? Yes, great …

A petition is a kind of poll, isn’t it?

First, go read Amy Roth’s summary of the situation: there is a small group of Mabusesque obsessive haters who have been harassing a number of vocal atheists for the past few years. I know; I’m one of their targets, and I can tell you, these people are really screwed up and pathologically focused on hating …

Polling for an excuse

The Pickens County School Board has been informed by the Freedom From Religion Foundation that their habit of opening public meetings of a secular institution is illegal. Their response? A pointless poll, of course! Do you think prayer should be allowed at school board meetings? Yes 20% No 80% If ever I’m arrested for jaywalking …
